This guy is just good and this world needs that — that sort of reliable goodness. I think he’s been treated really beautifully and really well and with a lot of humor, but never laughing at him [...] When people think about Garth, the people who love the show, they always have a smile on their face. It’s just that throughline of kindness and patience. People cheered on Garth’s journey, and that’s been a really great thing as an actor.

DJ Qualls plays the role of Garth Fitzgerald IV on Supernatural. Born in Nashville, Tennessee, DJ got his first big acting break in the feature film Road Trip in 2000. Writer Daniel Loflin explains how Garth originated in the writers room.

DJ Qualls came out as gay in January 2020. He made the announcement when he joined former Legit co-star comedian Jim Jeffries on stage during a gig in San Diego on the 10th January. He later tweeted:

"It is 11:20pm. I just came out on stage at a @jimjefferies show in San Diego. Yep, I'm gay. Been gay this whole time. Tired of worrying about what people would think of me. Tired of worrying about what it would do to my career."

He got lots of tweets of support from fandom and the SPN cast.

On his podcast Locked & Probably Loaded on 15 May, 2024 D.J. Qualls told cohost Kelly Blackheart that he and Ty Olsson were getting married. He recounted the story of how they met at a Supernatural convention, became friends and then their relationship developed from there. Taken unawares, the usual astute fandom combed back through the pairs' social media postings to see all the clues we had missed!
